St Sepulchre Church
St Sepulchre without Newgate, also known as Holy Sepulchre is the largest Parish Church in the City. Founded in the 12th century, the tower and outer walls were built about 1450. The main body of the building was rebuilt in 1670-71 after the Great Fire of London and again in the 19th century. The 150 feet high tower contains a ring of twelve bells made famous in the nursery rhyme as 'The Bells of Old Bailey', other historic features include a hand bell of 1605 used to rouse the condemned at Newgate prison on the eve of their execution.
Memorials include those to Henry Wood, founder of the Promenade Concerts in the Musicians' Chapel, and elsewhere to Captain John Smith, the first Governor of the state of Virginia, USA.
